Wow, this was the worst hotel experience I have ever had! I tried to check-out early since I had booked extra days past my one night through Kayak. I had gotten in late and had no idea that place was so bad until I had already slapped down the credit card to extend. They would not give me anything back since it was already charged to my card. It was a rare thing to walk to either sink and not find at least one roach. After working all day outside Saturday, a cold (not warm, cold) shower was available. When I told the front desk I was yelled at and told to go back to my room. NEVER have I been treated badly by hotel staff! The two tables at the pool are the smoking area. Even when I went out to have breakfast and no one was around, it was quickly swarming with smokers...right where I was eating when there was another butt bucket at the other table. The guests are just loud and trashy and it very much felt like most of them live there as they all seem to know one another. It was normal to see someone standing by the pool with a cigarette in their hand yelling to family in their room through the open door, on either floor. The tub had a large hole in the bottom that was patched and a rubber mat placed over it. The TV had a hard time turning on and when it finally would, the picture was very saturated and blurry. The room smelled bad and the ceiling fan only worked as a light. The stove was rusty and old and most of the electric eyes were falling in. The fridge was good!
The pool looked nice but we did not use it.
Kinda low-lifeish. Older motel with no extras, other than a pool if you can call that an extra in Florida. No breakfast of any kind. Range and sink but no dishes, pans, flatware, Pretty basic motel.
